Installs extremely easily

By Colins65

from Dublin

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Very easy to install

Cons

  • No Sata Power Connector

Best Uses

  • For Novices And Above

Extremely simple to install - happy with my purchase and would reccommend to anyone looking for a Desktop installation kit.

I'd have given this a 5 star rating, except no SATA power connector is included in the kit. Most Desktops will have spare connections available, sadly mine did not which meant an extra trip the shops to use the new Crucial SSD I was connecting to.

Crucial Easy Desktop Install Kit

By Trader9

from London, Gatwick.

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Ease of install

Cons

  • I Had To Buy New Software
  • Image Cd Would Not Boot
  • None Of The Kit Was Used

Best Uses

    I bought the kit to make the install easy. However what I found was that the Image software was not compatible with Windows 8 and did not boot on my other Windows 7 PC.

    I also found I could connect the new SSD using the existing DVD connectors for data and power and then clone the old hard drive using a $49 download of Acronis 2013 Image software. My PC a Packard Bell iMedia S2870 had mounting holes for a 2.5" drive and so none of the kit was used.

    The problem is you don't know until you know. I may have needed all the kit. Check first if you can before ordering the kit as it may not be needed.
